DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announces that the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau has approved its Gen-X Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) hardware with touch-panel display. The Gen-X hardware is an avionics-certified PC suitable for other applications when installed into an aircraft.
DAC International developed the product to complement a helicopter moving map and auto-tracking system developed by Navicom Aviation Corporation. The NMS-01S utilizes DAC’s EFB hardware with touch-panel display and Iridium phone system. Using DAC’s EFB as the map generator and interfacing with the Iridium system eliminates use of interface boxes. The new interface with auto-tracking system enables the transmission of character message from air to ground, including registered position from air to ground without the need for an additional interface unit.
